March Is National Eye Donor Month

Historically, March is proclaimed National Eye Donor Month to raise awareness of the need to donate every year since President Reagan took the initiative in 1983 to declare the first National Eye Donor month. Since then Congress continues the tradition to highlight the constant need for tissue donations each March.

The Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin received their state proclamation from Governor Doyle declaring March 2010 Eye Donor Month in Wisconsin.

Join the Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin in celebrating National Eye Donor Month in March 2010!

This special time is set aside to honor donors, donor families and cornea recipients and to educate others about becoming an eye donor. There is no substitute for human tissue and the demand far outweighs the supply.

Each year, approximately 46,000 Americans need a cornea transplant. By pledging to become an eye donor, you can help give vision and the “Gift Of Sight” to others after you are gone.

The gift of sight is invaluable and it is one you can give by becoming a donor. Sign the back of your driver’s license now or add your name to your state’s new donor registry April 1, 2010, and let your family or next of kin know about your choice to donate. You can make a difference

Share Your Lion Moment

Y’all know that I enjoy collecting Lion pins (guess I’ve been to too many southern conventions). A few weeks ago I got a pin from District Governor Charlie at a convention in Minnesota. The pin showed a golfer on a fairway and had the caption “share your moment.” I thought it had something to do with a great golf shot but I was wrong. His message is that we all have a moment when we become a Lion. It’s usually a moment when we realize that being a Lion brings a great feeling of internal satisfaction by helping someone in need.

By working together as Lions we made a difference in someone’s life. I’ve often relayed that my moment came a few years after I joined Lions and I was roused from bed at 2:00 a.m. to transport a pair of eyes from Fond du Lac to the Eye Bank in Milwaukee.

I had a lot of time alone with that pair of eyes sitting next to me on the front seat of my car. I thought about the final generosity of the person who donated their eyes. More importantly I knew someone was going to regain their vision.

That trip hooked me on Lions. I’ve had many other moments over the years that continue to reinforce why I am a Lion.

I’ve seen the joy in the eyes of many Lions who share their special moments with me as I make my visits as an International Director.

District Governor Charlie was encouraging us to think about and share our moments...

It will make asking someone to become a Lion a lot easier.

It will keep our fellow Lions from walking away from Lionism.

It will help you to get more involved in your Lions Club. What is your Lion moment?

If you haven’t had a Lion moment, I encourage you to visit our Wisconsin Lions Camp this summer and spend some time with a camper.

Or perhaps you can become a transporter for the Eye Bank.

Get involved in your club’s next service project.

Touch the life of someone in your community.

Don’t wait to be asked, delve right in. The rewards will make you a Lion for life.
